Whitney Houston

Family BATTLES Over

Billboard Tribute Award

5/20/2012 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston
's sister-in-law -- Pat Houston -- is waging war against Bobbi Kristina because she desperately wants to accept Whitney's Billboard Music Award on her behalf ... and only BK is standing in her way.

Sources closes to the situation tell TMZ ... Pat is trying to force herself into the spotlight by accepting Whitney's Millenium Award at the ceremony in Las Vegas tonight ... and producers of the show are pissed.

We're told the show really wants BK to accept the award and make the speech on the late singer's behalf ... but Pat won't stand for it and is making life hell for them as she tries to worm her way into the segment.

Sources tell us ... the show's producers feel BK is the best choice to represent Whitney's legacy and they're convinced Pat is simply exploiting the situation to get publicity for her upcoming reality show.

They should address a personal invitation to BK and there wouldn't be a dispute. Nobody cares about Pat.

I think Bobbi should accept her mother's award. So Pat step aside and let the girl get her mother award. It don't make sense for a grown woman who supose to have sense to act like a child with none. BK is her daughter and next to kin. She should except it on her mother's behalf.

A sister-in-law is nothing. Have her arrested for trespassing if she shows up. The daughter is the next of kin, period.

Her only child or her mother should accept it...go away Pat, you already failed!

Hey TMZ- This is not news! The Producers have absolute final say on who walks out on to the stage at the production. So whomever WANTS to do it is irrelevant. Once again, you guys are creating drama out of no drama.

WEhy wouldn't her daughtert be the one too accept it. There is no one else that should even be in the running. I knew Pat was no good when she gave that interview to Oprah. I saw then something not right with her and that she is out for the money!! Shame on Whitneys brother to allow his wife to interfere with Bobby Kristin in accepting the award.

If Pat Houston has a "nickel's worth of sense" she would cooperate with the show's producers and help Bobbi Kristina "REHERSE" her acceptance speech. Realistically, "NO ONE" is interested in seeing "HER" ANYMORE!!! Since Bobbi Kristina wants to enter the "high profile" music business, THE MORE EXPOSURE SHE HAS THE BETTER!!! Sure, she's going to make some mistakes but how else is she going to become comfortable in the spotlight. She doesn't need an "overbearing" MEDIA HOG GETTING IN HER WAY!!! Bobbi Kristina DOESN'T OWE Pat Houston "ANTYTHING"!!! Whatever nurturing and support she provided IS WHAT "FAMILY" IS SUPPOSE TO DO!!! I doubt seriously, if she worked for Whitney Houston FOR FREE!!!

I agree the award should be accepted by the next of kin - the child or the mother. But if they can't get it together, I'd sit them all down and ask Clive Davis to accept on her behalf.

Pat should have gone to Whitneys hotel room early in the day. She blew Whitney off!!!! Now she wants to take the spotlight away from Bobbi Kristina....Pat you were not Whitneys dear sister in law, you were looking for money and fame you should be ashamed of yourself, your a disgrace to the family
